Istanbul, Turkey

Say ‘merhaba’ (hello) to Istanbul, Turkey — one of the world’s great cities. It’s a vibrant and exciting metropolis — and shockingly clean for a city with 15 Million residents.

Once called Byzantium, then Constantinople and now Istanbul, this city has been the capital of three great civilizations (make that four, including modern day Turkey).

In our video journey, we visit the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, the Spice Market, the Grand Bazaar, the Golden Horn, the Bosphorus strait, Taksim Square, the Galata Bridge, the Galata Tower, the underground cistern, Dolmabahçe Palace, the Hippodrome, Istiklal Street and the Prince Islands.
